Damn, Rob; can't get your JPG to open...

Trying to upgrade this to 'dumber than dumbest' because the competition are stiff...

I can say that at the time, we all breathed a sigh of relief in 79 with her exit; not to start a Donna bashing thread, just an observation. It was simply an intrusion during PITBs or GSETs when she would bring you crashing down (it was worse live, IMO).

Sorry, Donna; I know you're reading this...

Now why did you even HAVE to bring that up? It's not like it hasn't been stated 100,000,000 times here. (and, yes, I counted).

Let's stick with the positive. She really does have a pretty voice, she is a nice person and good-looking too. Not too shabby in my opinion.

Aren't there some things from your past you wish people would just never bring up again?

It's called "movin on" and I know we can do it.

You're right. Sorry. Just too much baggage for me, but you guys can do it...

Go for it.

Will - it should open now. Always take a little while after posting before attachments become available.

The Donna route to hair-tearing irritation is a well-travelled one - and I heartily concur that one's enjoyment of an exhilarating Playin' was often spoiled by the buttock-clenching anticipation of the banshee wail that would bring it all crashing back down. But I don't want to start anything here.

Paradoxically perhaps, for me anyway the peak of the Grateful Dead's playing was during the Godchaux (Keith) years. Never did have a fondness for the tinkly keyboards and over-wrought constipated singing of that Mydland fellow.

Mind you, everything sucked in the eighties.

Good pic...yep, works fine now.

I are sorry for opening the 'Donna bashing door' but I can see that folks followed Deadmax's advice to be nice, and that is good.

The door is shut.

objection to the mydland comment! calls for an inadmissible conclusion.

And that conclusion would be?

This isnt a speaking objection, counsel. I only have to explain myself to the court.

Consider the court in session. Otherwise what's the point in flapping your gums?

Speaking objections are long, run-ons that give a detailed reason for the objection. They're a product of old-school lawyering and are disfavored now in most places. I thought I was just being casually funny, not "flapping my gums." I'm an 80s fan, unlike you.

You know, I guessed that.
